[Verse]
Em                                 Em/F# (022002)
Tommy used to work on the docks
Em
Union's been on strike. He's down on his luck
      C      D           Em
It's though,   so though.

Em                                 Em/F#
Gina work the dinner all day
Em
Working for her man. She brings home hre pay
      C      D       Em
For love, for love.


[Pre-Chorus]
                       C   D                Em
She says we've got to hold on to what we've got.
C                 D                           Em
It doesn't make a difference if we make it or not.
       C        D                 Em        C
We've got each other and that's a lot, for love.
      D
We'll give it a shot.


[Chorus]
Em  C           D           G                 D7sus4
Woooo, we're halfway there, wooo, livin' on a prayer.
Em       C          D
Take my hand we'll make it, I swear
G  C  D7sus4
Wooo, livin' on a prayer


[Verse]
Em                                 Em/F#
Tommy's got his six string in hock,
Em
now he's holding in, what he used to make it talk
      C      D           Em
So though, it's so though.

Em                                 Em/F#
Gina dreams of running away
Em
When she cries in the night, Tommy whispers:
      C      D           Em
Baby it's O.K., some day.

We've got to hold on ....


[Chorus]
Em  C           D           G                 D7sus4
Woooo, we're halfway there, wooo, livin' on a prayer.
Em       C          D
Take my hand we'll make it, I swear
G  C  D7sus4
Wooo, livin' on a prayer
C
Livin' on a prayer.


[Solo]
 Em, C, D, G, C, D ...


[Bridge]
Em                        C   D             Em D
Oooooooooh, we've got to hold on, ready or not
      C                           D
You live for the fight when it's all that you've got.


[Chorus]
Bb   Eb        Fsus4     F
Woooooo, we're half ---- way there
Bb   Eb  F7sus4
Woooooo, livin' on a prayer
Gm      Eb             F
Take my hand and we'll make it I swear
Bb  Eb F7sus4
Woooo, livin on a prayer

This is a good chord but I think the "wooo, livin' on a prayer." in each chorus actually goes:

G C D D7
wooo, livin' on a prayer.

Also, I think instead of D7sus4, most times just go to a D-D7 change-up.

And one little last thing, at the end of each chorus where it's:

C C7
